Kim Kardashian and Jennifer Lopez have made fuller derrieres more popular and mainstream –

Beware injections offered with silicone, rather than your own fat harvested and injected in an operating room.

This CNN story describes the death and injuries of several women who received buttocks injections with silicone.  Silicone is safe in an implant, but is not meant to be injected directly into tissues, where it can become infected, migrate, cause hard scarring, or block blood vessels.  It’s not always worthwhile to save money; please see a trained plastic surgeon!
